Arsenal lead the teams with 33 points and their Dutch striker Vivianne Miedema is top goal scorer in the league with 14 goals despite not scoring a goal yet in 2020. Against Brighton it was her teammates Danielle Van De Donk, Jill Roord, Jordan Nobbs and club favourite Beth Mead all contributing to the goals which highlights how much of a threat this Arsenal side is. Sunday will see the league leaders face Chelsea.
Manchester City are hot on the heels of Arsenal as they beat Everton 3-1 last weekend. Pauline Bremer scored two of them to add to her goal tally. The German has now scored 9 goals in the WSL which is joint 2nd with Chelsea’s Beth England.
Chelsea looked dangerous as they put 6 past Bristol City. New signing Sam Kerr came off the bench to join Beth England up-front which saw their formation adapt to an effective 4-4-2. It was Emma Hayes 200th game in charge and what a way to mark it. Staying with Chelsea, Fran Kirby is still suffering from an illness while former Chelsea and England forward Eniola Aluko announced her retirement from football.
Elsewhere Fara Williams signed a new contract keeping her at Reading until 2021. They will travel to Everton looking for their 6th win of the season.
